Immersion

I have an interest in how humanity confronts nature's elements, specifically water. This interest is galvanized by my need to express situations in which humanity confronts, and ultimately fails, to overpower nature. My photographs aim to create an aesthetic experience of awe and terror to confront the sublime in nature. Inspired largely by the artists of the Hudson River School, I am attempting to modernize Romanticism through unconventional methods of photography. I use darkness, strong back lighting, and the natural element of water as my basis. I manipulate the scene to express sublimity while juxtaposing bright dynamic energy and darkened still forms to symbolize the conceptual contrast between nature and man. These images begin by focusing on beauty and then gradually descend into the grotesque; this emphasizes the struggle and defeat when humanity fails to conquer nature.
